Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie

This year I made my own birthday cake. How else are you supposed to get exactly the cake you want if you don’t make it yourself? Having returned from Puerto Rico that week, I wanted to keep up with the vegan deliciousness. Also, after eating so many whole foods and no processed sugar, cake and … Continue reading Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie

Mint Chocolate Chip Pie

Happy belated Pi Day and happy early St. Patrick’s Day! I never really got too excited about either holiday on its own, as I didn’t even realize Pi Day was a holiday until a few years ago, and I am exactly 0% Irish. However, when you combine the two days, you get a celebration of … Continue reading Mint Chocolate Chip Pie

Black Bean Molten Lava Cakes

Happy belated Valentine’s Day! I sit here snowed in again, this time by a blizzard with type 2 hurricane winds. A blizzicane? Trains are cancelled, coffee shop closed, traveling discouraged.

But before I … Continue reading Mexican Spiced Mocha Pancakes

Breakfast Ice Cream

Yes that’s right. Ice cream for breakfast. A dream come true. This is the new recipe I mentioned in my previous post. We went a bit overboard with the fried bananas Friday night and decided to do something a little more creative with them. And we hadn’t had dessert yet, so this seemed like a … Continue reading Breakfast Ice Cream

My Week of Smoothies

For the past week, I decided that I would have a smoothie every day for breakfast. One reason for this is due to my massive compilation of smoothie recipes on Pinterest. This started during my time in Southern California (typical), when I had a snickerdoodle smoothie at a Long Beach bar called NatureWell (recipe posted … Continue reading My Week of Smoothies
